    I received an advance reader's copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads, and what a pleasant surprise it was! I mean, what's not to love about a phrasebook that teaches you to express your craving for all-you-can-eat tacos? I majored in Spanish, have taught Spanish/English bilingual and English as a second language classes, and have family members from Panama, so I have actively used my language skills through the years--enough to be already familiar with many of the words and phrases in thi I received an advance reader's copy of this book from Goodreads First Reads, and what a pleasant surprise it was! I mean, what's not to love about a phrasebook that teaches you to express your craving for all-you-can-eat tacos? I majored in Spanish, have taught Spanish/English bilingual and English as a second language classes, and have family members from Panama, so I have actively used my language skills through the years--enough to be already familiar with many of the words and phrases in this book and to recognize it is a legit resource. Spanish is nonetheless my second language, so I still picked up a good number of new words and phrases as well. The author is very knowledgeable about the regional variations in slang and addresses them in a way which is easy to understand. The chapters are also well-organized and easy to use. What I especially loved about this book is that the English portions are written in slang as well, making for a most entertaining read--I don't remember the last time I used the word entertaining to describe a reference book, if ever! In fact, this so much more than just a phrasebook or quick reference. This book is a laugh-out-loud funny socio-linguistic study of Spanish slang. The cultural commentary the author includes in each chapter is every bit as important as the vocabulary, if not more so. The only thing that could possibly make this gem of a book better is perhaps some sort of index at the end. Highly recommended!
